Blackboard Collaborate Upgrade and Outage

Blackboard Collaborate, the University’s real-time, virtual classroom and web conferencing system will be upgraded from version 11 to 12.5 on Sunday 14 July.  This release will resolve some of the minor issues currently experienced by users and will also introduce a range of new features, including increased moderator control.

In order for this upgrade to occur, a five hour outage of the Blackboard Collaborate system is required. Blackboard Collaborate will be unavailable on Sunday 14 July 2013 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.

During this time, the system will be unavailable to all RMIT staff and students. ITS has selected this date as it is least disruptive to University activities.    

Further information about this upgrade published on the ‘ Teaching With Technology - Blackboard Collaborate’ webpage.
